There’s more than just Duke Nukem Forever
Duke Nukem Forever may have launched to tepid reviews last week but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost for future Duke titles. Duke Nukem Forever publisher Take Two has said that the series will continue. During an interview with Forbes, Take Two CEO CEO Strauss Zelnick was asked if the publisher owns the IP surrounding Duke and whether it could produce other Duke content, such as movies and TVs. Zelnick replied that we will see “future Duke IP coming from [Take Two].”
“Part of it is the economic opportunities that interact with entertainment are so huge. Part of it is that we are very creative folks in control,” he explained to Forbes. “Part of it is we don’t want to ever be in the position of dumping something down just to make another buck.
“If we can take some of our intellectual property and bring it to another medium in an extraordinary high quality way, that delights consumers and represents an interesting commercial opportunity for us, we will. We have certainly considered doing that with BioShock and with other titles. So far we haven’t brought anything to market, but stay tuned.”
Duke Nukem Forever arrived last week, receiving lukewarm reviews from both critics and fans. However, having been in development since 1996, many argue that the game was bound to disappoint diehard fans who had been waiting 15 years for the title to hit stores.
